Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

It's hard to believe i haven't posted anything by the outrageously brilliant Halcali on this page before. There aren't many bands that could inspire me, at twenty-five years of age, to try to learn their dance routines. Halca and Yucali were chosen at fourteen and fifteen by members of the J-Hop group Rip Slyme who had been holding auditions in their home town for new stars to work with - proof that rappers trawling for schoolgirls doesn't always end in tears. Popular in Japan, they've developed the kind of cult following in Europe and the USA that hasn't really been seen since the heyday of the mighty Puffy.

Giri Giri Surfrider is probably the best-known of their songs, the video is absolutely fantastic too - with two rival all-girl biker gangs engaged in a Beat It-style dance off.

Maachingu Maachi from their second album, Ongaku no Susume, is equally good. Listen carefully and you can hear how the Japanese pronounce Azerbaijan.
